Films for distribution

The Cinémathèque suisse makes available a selection of films for which it acquires the Swiss and sometimes international rights, intended for cinemas, film clubs, festivals and other cultural associations. These are heritage or contemporary films, co-produced or awarded in Switzerland, which enrich the collection. The synopses are only available in French and German.

The complete catalogue

The films listed below are available for distribution in DCP or other digital formats. Each listing contains useful information, digital promotional material and indicates the media and versions available. Any film reservation redirects to our request management platform which allows cinema managers and associations to order films from the Cinémathèque suisse catalogue. Prices can be found here.

The Cinémathèque suisse on tour

In association with cinemas and institutions in French-speaking Switzerland, the Cinémathèque suisse offers programmes of films from its collections outside its walls. These seasonal collaborations allow the public to watch or rewatch heritage films - most of them in restored versions - and award-winning contemporary films. These selections are shown once a month in various cinemas in French-speaking Switzerland.
